The Journey to Recover at Home: Health Care in Philadelphia, PA
Find out more about our in-home healthcare and how it can help patients transition home for a full recovery
Once a person has been discharged from the hospital, the road to recovery is only half complete. The time immediately after a hospital stay is critical to their health and recovery. Multiple studies in the past have shown that lack of proper care and support following serious hospitalization or surgery can lead to a readmission or slower-paced recovery. Typically, family members can volunteer to take care of their loved ones once they have been discharged from the hospital, but providing proper care can be arduous. These people are ill-prepared and untrained to meet the physical and emotional challenges presented by taking care of such people who are transitioning home. This is why Comfort Keepers offers different home care services to create a successful transition for loved ones returning home from surgery.
